CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – The interim chief of the state’s regional jail agency has gotten the job permanently.

The West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority’s board promoted David Farmer to executive director on Thursday.

Farmer had been appointed interim director in March after Joe DeLong resigned as head of the 10-jail system.

Before becoming interim director, Farmer served as deputy chief of operations for the authority and director of its training academy.

He also was administrator of the South Western Regional Jail and as director of inmate services of the South Central Regional Jail.
